The magical friendship of Phoebe and her best friend, unicorn Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, is back in this second adventure of a girl and her mythical creature!
One year has passed since Phoebe skipped a rock across a pond, accidentally hit a unicorn in the face, and was granted a single wish - which she used to make the unicorn, Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, her obligational best friend. In some ways, not much has changed. But unlike before, Phoebe now has a best friend to share her days with - someone to make her laugh and to listen to all her extravagant ideas.
In this second volume of Heavenly Nostrils the reader is invited on a journey into the lives of Phoebe and Marigold as they navigate the difficulties of school, celebrate the winter holidays, and explore their super hero/super villain personas together. Join in the fun, as Phoebe competes against Dakota for the leading role of 'Lisa Ladybug' in their fourth-grade play - or as she struggles to 'manage' the PR debacle related to her nose-picking scandal. ("I will neither confirm nor deny the events surrounding Boogergate.") Witness a band of unicorns staging an 'intervention' and learn all the details of Marigold's secret crush on a mysterious creature she has never seen. Perhaps most important, watch as this surprising friendship between a charming, nine-year-old dreamer and a vain, mythical beast forever changes both of them for the better.

"The book is a perfect mix of ongoing stories...I plainly love this strip, and I love the books." (Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing) "...charming...the comparison to Calvin and Hobbes is apt-it has a joke-a-day format with recurring themes and gentle, winning humor that often results in guffaws. Also like Calvin and Hobbes, there is a thin veneer of snarky cynicism that will keep older readers interested in the stories well beyond most children's magical unicorn-loving phase." (Booklist) Unicorn and snark fans rejoice..." (The Bulletin of The Center for Children's Books) Named one of "14 Notable Chapter Books for Summer Reading" list; "My kids and I adore these characters and love this new book. It's one we'll read over and over again." (Melissa Taylor, Imagination Soup) "This is an excellent addition to a family-friendly home library. Adults and kids alike will love this warm and witty book. Buy it!" (Kala Kumar, Examiner.com)
